Neighborhood Watch Program
Neighborhood Watch is one of the oldest and most effective crime prevention programs in the United States, bringing citizens together with law enforcement to deter crime and make communities safer.

The Newton County Sheriff's Office has been committed to promoting Neighborhood Watch Programs throughout our community for several years. To be successful as a law enforcement agency, the Sheriff's Office relies on our citizens to be "our eyes" in order to combat crime. Together as a team we can make a difference.


Neighborhood Watch Tips:

  • Organize neighborhood cleanup days to send the message that your community is closed to thieves, vandals, and loiterers.
  • Ask the Sheriff's Office to increase patrols of your neighborhood.
  • Sponsor a Neighborhood Watch.
  • Be sure the outside doors of your home or business have strong deadbolt locks.
  • Keep spare keys with a trusted neighbor or nearby shopkeeper, not under a doormat or planter, on a ledge, or in the mailbox.
  • Lock gates, garage doors, and shed doors after every use.
  • Illuminate or eliminate places an intruder might hide: the spaces between trees or shrubbery, stairwells, alleys, hallways, and entryways.
  • Set timers on lights when you're away from home or your business is closed so it appears to be occupied.
  • Keep your bicycles and sports equipment inside the house when they're not in use.
  • Avoid confrontations with burglars.
  • Always report any suspicious activity or persons by calling 911.
If you are interested in having a representative from the Sheriff's Office give a presentation to your neighborhood please contact: (678)-625-1400 for more details.
